Aussie mix engineer and music producer, now based in sunny London. I'm available in person or via online delivery.
I've had the privilege to work out of many of the great studios that Melbourne has on offer. My most recent base was at the iconic Sing Sing Recording Studios, but I also worked regularly at Oaklands Productions and Monash University.
I have a passion for music, strong attention to detail, and a creative ear, and I love being able to contribute to the development of a piece of music. My greatest love is being able to work with like-minded, creative individuals, and to know that I'm helping them achieve their vision.
I predominantly mix different types of popular music genres (hip hop, pop, rock, soul), but have also mixed for classical, opera, jazz, funk, blues and folk outfits. Distinguishing what is unique to a particular project is key to my methods, and accentuating that in the final product is my aim.

Prasheen is someone who makes work an enjoyable experience. His knowledge of the gear makes sessions stress free, his calm positive work ethic is comforting & his understanding & love for music gives support & guidance that you can trust. Having worked with Prasheen over the years on many different projects I can highly recommend this guy.
Top engineer, top mixer, and an absolute top bloke. I've had the pleasure of working with Prasheen numerous times over the years, tracking, producing, mixing and also mastering. No matter what style of band/project I have going on, he is my first call.
I've worked with Prasheen on several projects in some of the best studios in Melbourne Australia. He has an amazing ear, knowledge of gear/microphones and has an extremely broad knowledge of musicality and genres. His calm and warm personality encourages a comfortable and inspiring time whilst tracking & is cool team player in a mixing session.

Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I'll do my absolute best to help you achieve your vision.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?

A: Creativity, definition, excitement.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My mentor Forrester is an amazing producer. I've learned so much from him over the years. Everything Quincy Jones has touched in amazing!
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Mixing. Most of the time it's work sent to me, but occasionally I get my hands dirty and track the band as well.
